VPN settings overview

This section covers VPN settings. If the item is not listed in the specific Ivanti EPMM Device Management Guide of your chosen OS, it does not apply to that OS.

VPN is a technology that creates a secure network connection over a public network. A mobile device uses a VPN client to securely access protected corporate networks.

To use VPN:

  • On the device, the user installs a VPN client app.

You determine how the user obtains the VPN client app. You can, for example, add the app as a Google Play Store app to the App Catalog. See “Managing Mobile Apps for Android” in the Ivanti EPMM Apps@Work Guide.

If the device has a VPN already set on the device before installing the VPN client app, Ivanti Mobile@Work displays an error message. The message instructs the device user to install the VPN client app before setting the VPN connection setting.

  • Define a VPN setting in Ivanti EPMM.
  • Apply labels to the VPN setting so that the VPN setting is sent to the appropriate devices.
  • Depending on the type of VPN, additional set up steps may be required to complete the VPN configuration.

Ivanti Mobile@Work uses the VPN client and the VPN setting to enable access to corporate networks.

VPN Configurations are not supported with User Enrolled devices.
